- Worker leaves the factory

In the project Worker leaves the factory, Sofia Caesar investigates systems that, through video and notation, document the body of workers. In the residency, she is developing scripts for a performance for video that re-constructs four films produced in the Italian car manufacturer FIAT since 1911 to present days in which workers are documented in moments of leisure or while leaving work. She looks for moments of tension between camera and subject, and instruction and action, that allow for the subversion of the bodies' control. During the residency, she is working in collaboration with local performers and artists. As part of this project, she is also developing a piece for the permanent collection of Parco d'Arte Vivente in Turin, Italy, supported by Reso 6 and with the collaboration of Centro Storico Fiat.
